About Heroine

"Heroine: One Female Soldier's Story" is a one-woman show written and performed by Mary Jane Wells, based on the true story of a lesbian soldier in the U.S. Army: an outsider who wouldn't quit. She loved its challenges and thrived within that rigorous world. At the time she enlisted, before “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” was repealed, she was the only woman in her entire company and went on to lead a squad into combat. A survivor of military sexual trauma, she served on the battlefield alongside her assailant. "Heroine" is an incredible human story about one soldier's experiences, and what healing and forgiveness really mean.
